The Republic of Clistane is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its national health service, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.901 billion Clistaneans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andena. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.8%.

The all-consuming Clistanean economy, worth 501 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 102,270 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular, the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", and it is illegal for a parent to tell a child to stop eating their boogers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Clistane's national animal is the Parakeet, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Clistane is ranked 2,893rd in the world and 1,236th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 49 Valid Endorsements.
